Take A Look At Apple’s 12-Inch Slimmer MacBook Air Model
After gaining a lot of success in the markets with both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple is now looking forward to launch a whole new model of MacBook Air. This new machine from the Cupertino giant will have a new design that will discard some needed slots such as USB ports, Mag Safe connectors, and SD card slots, so that a thinner and lighter model can be manufactured, which will run a higher resolution.
Employees of Apple, who have managed to try the prototype of this new MacBook, have shared some interesting tidbits regarding the upcoming MacBook.
The display of this new machine is of 12-inches, which means it is relatively smaller than the usual laptops, and somewhat bigger than the mini-laptops. However, the best feature of this machine is its thickness, as it has been reduced from all sides.
Furthermore, the whole new look has been provided to the front of the computer. The keyboard has been improved along with the entire Unibody. The keys of the keyboard are now closer to each other, which will again help the company in reducing the size of the whole unit.
The track pad and the speakers have been overhauled as well to improve their overall performance and fit in the small machine. The track pad has not received much of a change, but it is slightly wider and slightly taller as it’s almost touching the bottom of the keyboard’s frame.
There’s an 11-inch model available in the market, but with 12-inches, Apple is looking to give more screen to the users, making sure that it doesn’t feel too big, which is why they have reduced the sides to the bare minimum. Due to the thin size of this new machine, Apple employees internally are calling it “MacBook Stealth.”
On the right side of this MacBook Air, the only slot is for the headphones, while the left side only consists of USB Type C slot. It seems that Apple has decided to abandon the standard USB ports, Mag Safe charging and some other slots in order to make this new MacBook Air.
Laptops of this sort help out a lot of people, who have to travel on a regular basis, as these machines are easier to carry and they aren’t so heavy either.
If you have grown tired of the 11-inch screen of the previous machine, then worry not as Apple has got you covered with the new 12-inch model, which despite one more inch is thinner than the previously released MacBook. MacBook Air is expected to hit the stores sometime in 2015, so keep an eye out for it!
